I have high instep, high arches, big calves, narrow heal, and extremely wide toes. Basically, my feet are shaped like swim fins/flippers. I don't believe there is any boot on the market which will fit my toes, without extensive modification. All are rounded at the front, where my toes are square, and in fact even wider at the little toe!
Ive tried a few different boots over the years. I currently have Salomon xpro 100, size 27.5, with custom footbeds. The boot shell has been heated/punched out all around the little toe area 3 or 4 times.
Still my toes are crushed and go numb. Im ready to try to cut apart the liner all around my little toe area, or maybe try to make a 'pocket' in the liner for my little toe. Is that advisable, and what is the best way?
Here are some pictures, if the link works:
Im willing to go to almost any length to fix by boot problem. Any help or advise would be much appreciated.
